I have stayed at Himalayan Hideaway several times over the last two years, and it has begun to feel like a home away from home. The staff are all so kind and friendly, and genuinely care about your stay... I look forward to seeing them each time. The new manager is welcoming, incredibly efficient, and also reassuringly calm and relaxed.....exactly... More

This retreat is blissful! Little cottages tucked into a lush hillside with the sound of the Ganges lulling your senses. The grounds are an oasis of calm and tranquility. The cottages are immaculately clean and well thought out with details like mosquitos screens on the windows and turn down service in the evenings. Mandhav and Aditya went the extra mile... More

What a wonderful surprise to end my travels at this beautiful place. My cabin overlooked the Ganges and the sound of the River lulled me to sleep. Best Indian food I had on my whole trip. Only difficulty most cabins accessed by stone walks and steps, not for the physically impaired. The staff found me trekking poles which helped as... More

While booking this hotel we checked our friends who are locals in Rishikesh. Nobody seemed to know for certain about this. We took a chance and booked it drawing a parallel with Tree of Life Jaipur. We were not disappointed. There are a few points to note though 1. The lodge is situated about 17 km from Rishikesh on NH... More

We came to Rishikesh for a belated honeymoon and were recommended the Tree of Life. A beautiful setting right by the Ganges and away from busy Rishikesh. The room was good with a great view of the river. The staff were attentive and helpful. And the food was also really good.

Very aptly named as 'The Himalayan Hideaway', it is actually a little difficult to spot if you are visiting the place for the first time and there is no one to guide you.
